Dr. Thorell, for being a neurosurgeon is probably the most down to earth physician I've had. I'm an RN at the hospital he works at & have been a patient of his for several years now, being seen for chiari malformation and spinal stenosis. I have yet to have surgery, but am completely confident that if the need arises I am in excellent hands. From the moment my husband & I met him, we were impressed with his bedside manner...he cares! And I feel like I'm always getting an honest opinion.

I absolutely loved Dr Thorell. He is a very intelligent physician but talks to you on a patient's level. He performed my pituitary surgery and gave me my life back! I will forever be indebted to him.
